"What's interesting about San Francisco is that the higher into the hills you go, the more rich people's houses there are. Picture that steep street on Pine and Powell - with the Fairmont hotel on top of it - can you imagine a homeless person pushing their shopping trolley up that?"

One of my friends - an Urban Planning graduate - explaining the urban segregation of San Francisco, the reason that places like the Tenderloin exist.

Another friend, a Couchsurfing member who stayed with us whilst he was looking for a place to live, told us about his trouble finding a suitable Narcotics Anonymous meeting to attend in the TL.
